Donny van de Beek will play a "big, big part" for Manchester United this season said manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who defended his decision to use the £35m summer signing sparingly so far.

During the news conference building up to Wednesday's match against RB Leipzig, the Norwegian boss highlighted that his side would be playing a game every two or three days and that he would need to make use of his whole squad.

|Sports / Ronaldo Better Than Messi But I’m Greatest Player Ever - Pele by WinningGoals10: 3:20pm On Oct 25|
Brazilian legend Pele has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo is better than Lionel Messi but insisted that he is still the greatest footballer of all time.
Pele,79, who holds Guinness World Record as top scorer of all time, doesn’t think that both stars quite live up to his greatness.
Telling YouTube channel Pilhado, Pale said: “Today the best player in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I think he’s the best, because he’s more consistent. You can’t forget about [Lionel] Messi, of course, but he’s not a striker.”
Ronaldo, 35, has scored an astonishing 725 goals in 1000 total games over the course of his glittering career.
But Messi, two years his junior, also boasts an amazing record, having bagged 697 goals in 856 games, despite – as Pele points out – not being a centre-forward.
